Ohana® Founder, Pro Surfer & Celebrity Personal Trainer Tehillah McGuinness

Meet Tehillah McGuinness, a South African pro-surfer, middle and long-distance national running Champion and founder of Ohana® Surf & Fitness. Tehillah is a sponsored athlete, who formerly placed top in the South African Surf Championships and ranked as high as #3 on the UK Pro Surf Tour as well as top 10 on the European Longboard Rankings. 

Tehillah is a professional surf coach with vast experience in teaching surfing to groups of all sizes and surfing abilities. Within a private surf coaching lesson, you are guaranteed to either be on your own with your surf coach Tee, a loved one(s) or friends. Either way, Tehillah and her team are known for providing exceptionally attentive tuition.

Our entire team have spent a lifetime in the sea, clocking up hours upon hours of surfing the waves of Fuerteventura. That said, all our instructors know what it’s like to be a beginner, which is why we put a huge focus on mastering the basics first.

Not only are all of our surf coaches at Ohana® Surf and Fitness internationally qualified instructors, they are also qualified lifeguards. Together they have vast experience in teaching both the mental and physical components of surfing.

When I was recommended Ohana Surf and Fitness, I really got lucky. Small personal groups with instructors who really know what they are talking about. My group had Tehillah as the instructor and she was fantastic. Patient, professional, fun and encouraging. She has given me the confidence to continue surfing in the future.

Tehillah made our 2018. Best few day’s surfing we’ve ever had, and the best surf coach we could hope for. We are so grateful we chose Ohana. We’ll definitely be back.
